about

Things haven’t been easy for Usura. When Ana, Alfonso, Miguel and Gary (ex member of english bands Cement Garden and La Cucina) made their first record for Elefant back en 1992, the “Lovesick” Ep, people in Spain weren’t very receptive to their sound, a sharp, sometimes catchy noise pop with an edge.

Then, suddenly, their songs gained extensive airplay in the few most important magazines in Spain (“Lovesick” was the 8th best song of the year for Rock de Lux, our VOX) and everytime, their concerts were attended by a large number of people. No one knows who, our indie scene was invented then, and a whole bunch of new bands were ready to end up with the stereotypes of spanish music being AOR or mainstream flamenco. Usura were already leading the scene.
After one year of touring and droping songs in several compilations (in Germany, Japan, England...), the “Hake Romana” Lp have meant a successful comeback for Usura. If clear, dense, poweful and intelligent pop is what you crave, Usura are here to clear away the cobwebs that were left behind your speakers from too much distorsion, posturing and/or indie mediocrities. Their lyrics combine sensual images with abstract meanings. Some songs are somewhat poppy, with strong guitar melodies surging forward, and the musical styles cover a range of dynamics and instruments from loud and distorted to soft and semi acoustic. Tracks such as “Childtoy”, “Maze”, or “Sweeten the air” had something to do when they were chosen to support Yo La Tengo in their spanish gigs (as they did before with Lush) and for the rave reviews “Hake Romana” has achieved in several spanish magazines and newspapers.

Track Name: Childtoy
Time
Give me the time
And see the sun jumping so fast

I don’t want what you’ve found
I don’t want you wine
I don’t want your job
I don’t want your

Give me the time
Give me the time
Give me the blue blue tears
Like we’re just done

I don’t want your loss
I don’t want you around
I don’t want your wine
This ain’t good for no one

In your mind, a little walk
In your mind, females walk

Ahhh jumping so fast
Out of the mad high house
Under the sun

I don’t want your grace
I don’t want your race
I don’t want your ways
I don’t want your place

In your mind, a little walk
In your mind, females walk
A small way, a little walk
In your mind, females walk

I don’t want you around
I don’t want your wine
I don’t want your job
I don’t want your sound
I don’t want your eyes
I don’t want your
I don’t want your
I don’t want your
Track Name: This One
This one is in your mind
And travelled through your thoughts
This one is in yours
Not making a sound
Shine and give me an answer

Shine
I stepped into three colors
A wild impact in your veins
A man who said “who I am, who I am”

Shine
I stepped into three colors
A wild impact in your veins
And a man who said “but I shout, but I shout”

This one is in your mouth
Colored pink and is warm
Shine and give me an answer

Shine
I stepped into three colors
A wild impact in your veins
And a man who said “but I shout, but I shout”
Track Name: Bum
I said I want go now and now
Get over there
Why you
You make me a bum
Track Name: Nakked Bett's Sound
Walking down a lonely path
The dose is large
It’s door to neck
A wagon off track banging to myself

Mulberries jumping on me and I see
I don’t feel my life’s inside
I don’t feel I don’t feel is going to happen

What different kind
What different lies I have to hear
What different kind
Nevermind

What different kind
What different

I am the line on your back that you have to feel

Let it melted
Or so it seems
Playing in a new realm
Delicious and loving, in my ears
A humble day dream is over

And I see
I don’t feel my life’s inside
I don’t feel I don’t feel is going to happen
Track Name: Slow
She’s a purity flash
Sending me
Her features
Lovely things
The demons are twisting my room
My no-land
The demons are twisting my no-land

Captured smiles from the heavy flames
I’ll be around dancing with tight strings

The demons are twisting my room
My no-land
The demons are twisting my no-land


Here it’s the light of love crackling my
Out right zone, your place is not alone
Who owns these objects
That are twisting my no-land
The demons are twisting my room no-land
Track Name: Catapunk
Whispering waves
She lives by it
It’s lightning fast
And now here we are

Everything is in your hands
All nature is in your arms
Everything is getting less
That we don’t like

Smiling birds caressing your head

Everything’s been given to us
Everything is in your hands
Hey, I give you the answer
Hey, I send you a message
It’s in your hands
Track Name: Outside All Is White
Magical fibres
Warm and wet joining us
I thought this was a love box
My sister smiles but cries too
So why

I will bite until I break my teeth
A few ropes around him
He felt warm inside but outside all is white
His steps turned up into living stones
To my head this journey equals “0”
His fingers sucked the death that flows
His fingers sucked and neutralized
His fingers stuck
I want your arms
Whenever you need calm

Your fingers stuck: “I want the top”

Why a stranger Nature squeezed us
But you haven’t expressed it
In that mile you couldn’t stay
For feeling high
Gone too far

I will bite until I break my teeth
A few ropes around him
He felt warm inside but outside all is white
His steps turned up into living stones
To my head this journey equals “0”
His fingers sucked the death that flows
His fingers sucked and neutralized
His fingers sucked

I want your arms
Whenever you need calm

Your fingers stuck: “I want the top”
Track Name: Maze
His lies are around
If I lie down
His lies are around
If I lie down
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
I give myself If I, I don’t
I give myself If I, I don’t
I give you a snap with my fingers
I don’t, myself, If I don’t
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
You turn on me as I leave you
You turn on me as I leave you
Hey don’t go, I love you like a man
Hey don’t go
Here comes the loneliness

I look around with my no-eyes
I look around with my no-eyes
He could smile in the silence
He could smile in the silence
He could break in the silence
He could break in the silence
Inside he’s got a nice dreamer
Inside he’s got a nice dreamer
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
You turn on me as I’m dreaming
Hey don’t go, I love you like a man
Hey don’t go
Here comes the loneliness

And I tried to feel I’m getting mad
We are fakers
We are the first
It is just too common

I want to lie in your sugar
I want to lie in your sugar
He tries to smile if I don’t
He tries to smile if I don’t
And now you are walking on my seas
And now you are walking on my seas
On my sea you are now walking
On my sea you are now walking
Where do we begin, If I don’t
Where do we begin, If I don’t
I give you a shake with my fingers

Hey don’t go, I love you like a man
Hey don’t go
Here comes the loneliness

And I tried to feel I’m getting mad
We are fakers
We are the first
It is just too common

And I want to realize that I’ve been watching you
And I want to realize that I’ve been watching you
Track Name: Painting Warm
You wake up, you should stay
Is it a bad day, I’m asking
I see several lonely voids
In search for a fresh pearl
I love them, your eyes sweetly crack
I love like
I touch your skin
This is mine, this is mine, this is mine
When your dream is sad
This is mine, this is mine, this is mine

When I look at your charming gestures I love them
You blow me, sugar cane
You’re perfect, a good saint
I love them, your eyes sweetly crack
I love like
I touch your skin
This is mine, this is mine, this is mine
When your dream is sad
This is mine, this is mine, this is mine
Track Name: Sleepy La Beef
I wanna hear then look around
I wanna hear, I wanna hear
I look around, I look around
I wanna hear, I wanna hear

You’ll find the pleasure to hear
I just came slowly to hear
But I know can’t have everything

Every time you want to hear, every time you want to hear
Everything is fine
Every time you want to hear, every time you want to hear

Am I wondering?
I am wonderer
Am I wondering?
Just get away from here
Get away from here
Track Name: Catapunk
Whispering waves
She lives by it
It’s lightning fast
And now here we are

Everything is in your hands
All nature is in your arms
Everything is getting less
That we don’t like

Smiling birds caressing your head

Everything’s been given to us
Everything is in your hands
Hey, I give you the answer
Hey, I send you a message
It’s in your hands
Track Name: Cheese
This makeup cries
There’s no reason to make you deaf
Look at your watch
Hearthrobs deeply
Turn around, turn around
Spitting schemes and food

By candles light
I know better ways
Different standpoints

I remember her kisses
And her kiss, and her kiss
Hopeful inmates they were

Screwed down his delighted lazy house
Where crashing its hell
God will bless your hands
And your head will be a sucked sweet

How could you be clear, how could you be cold
I’m hanging on, playing songs to this shell

By candles light
I know better ways
Different standpoints

I remember her kisses
And her kiss, and her kiss
Hopeful inmates they were

How could you be clear, how could you be cold
I’m hanging on playing songs to this shell
I adore your name
Inside an spiral staircase and go like waterfalls above your lake
Track Name: Sweeten The Air
Around the world you and me
‘Cause I don’t want to live in a dream
I’m wondering out is far
‘Cause I want to enjoy this time
And tear all lines

To care about you
To really care
You curl up
Sweeten the air

The angel was unaware of the love we made
‘Cause I don’t really shout and no need to feel too high

Everything is going where?
Yes you are
Everything that I could know
I know why
‘Cause the ladder can be tight
Yes you are
I won’t think until it’s later

Were we sick?
There’s no time you want to leave
‘Cause I don’t really shout
And you want to feel sad?

There is our trip
Don’t look for
It’s an inner voice you need to learn
Then look around
Do you really care? And you curl up?
It’s just about time
I wonder why
To care about you
To really care
To curl up
Sweeten the air
